Advanced Practice Provider Student Clinical Placement

The University of Kansas Health System welcomes all current graduate Advanced Practice Provider (APP) students, including APRNs and physician assistants, to apply for clinical placement. Collaboration between physicians, nurses, researchers, educators, APPs and other professionals who share their expertise leads to a strong learning environment.

Due to COVID-19, additional reviews are being made of every placement request, evaluating for the impact of added students on space, PPE use and other concerns as they arise. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.

Nursing license

The University of Kansas Health System requires a nursing license in the state of Kansas in order to complete clinical hours. If placement is requested at a site in Missouri, a nursing license in Missouri is required. A Compact License is acceptable to meet these requirements. This does NOT apply to physician assistant students.

School affiliation

Placements cannot be made until an agreement between The University of Kansas Health System and your school is in place. Confirm with your school that an agreement is in place prior to entering your placement request.

Request for student placement

Students will need to confirm placement with their preceptor prior to entering the placement request.

To support our processes of: (1) placement confirmation, (2) documentation that all student requirements are met, and (3) EHR access requests are completed, student requests:

  • Are to be submitted at least 45 days prior to the submitted start date of clinical hours
  • Should not be submitted at the link below more than 6 months prior to the start date of clinical hours
  • Need to be submitted for each semester

To submit your required health system request: Click the student placement request link below to be taken to a confidential website for submission of needed information.

Do not assume that this request is equal to a confirmation of placement.
